Two Aussies on a road trip across the heartland of America from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Chicago, Illinois. After departing Cincinnati in Ohio we headed for Indianapolis, Indiana a city I knew very little about apart from the Indy 500 car race. What a cool city it turned out to be with impressive and scenic sights to take in, many stately buildings and a vibe that was a lot of fun! This is Part 5 of a series of photos of that journey showing cityscapes, famous places and some Man vs. Food meals along the way (score update Man: 5 Food: 1)!
One of the food specialities in Indianapolis is a jumbopork tenderloin sandwich. A recommended place to try one was Edwards Drive-In. I ate mine with onion rings and washed it down with their homemade root beer. Delicious!
Downtown Indianapolis has many scenic places to checkout including the Riverwalk and many impressive monuments. Don’t miss the following (well you can’t really as they are massive!) – the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in the middle of Monument Circle and the nearby War Memorial Plaza with the Indiana War Memorial being its centre piece. Check them out at night as they are all beautifully lit.
